Jürgen Klauke. Aesthetic Paranoia :: In his photographs Jürgen Klauke contemplates in austerely minimal to excessive, sometimes also surreal scenes, the basic conditions of paranoid existence.

As one of the seminal photo and media artists in Germany, Jürgen Klauke has achieved pioneering art work in the area of Body Art and critical confrontation with socially normed gender identities and social patterns of behavior - The exhibition runs until October 3rd, 2010 ⁄⁄ more
